Wooden beams and marès stone bricks define the roof of a house in Mallorca

MM House, designed by Salvà Ortín Arquitectes, is an interconnection of volumes overlooking the Spanish landscape through terraces and openings.  

Located close to the city of Algaida, Mallorca, MM House is a residential project by Salvà Ortín Arquitectes. The complex, surrounded by nature, is organized on two floors and is conceived to connect the interiors with the surrounding landscape. Large openings – mostly oriented on the back to guarantee privacy – provide, in fact, views on the Spanish hills and terraces in a physical connection with the outside.

The building, distributed on 270 sqm, is made of multiple interconnected volumes of different heights and slopes, producing a movement also visible inside. Interiors are organized around the double-height dining room, considered the main area of the house, around which all other rooms and functions are articulated: living room, kitchen, stairs to the first floor, terrace on the main facade and hall.

Wooden floor is interrupted by dark-grey ceramic tiles, emphasizing the zones and visually separating the various spaces. The structure of the roof is left visible: concrete and wooden beams support bricks made of marès stone, a local material. On the second floor, organized again around the central dining area, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
